Mousa Ghazanfarabadi, head of Tehran Revolutionary Court, said the Supreme Court has ruled that capital punishment is commensurate with their conviction for “aiding and abetting” violent action against the establishment, Tasnim News Agency reported.
On June 7, 2017, Daesh terrorists launched simultaneous attacks on Iran’s Parliament building in downtown Tehran and the mausoleum of the founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini.
The attacks left 17 people dead and more than 40 others wounded.
All of the five gunmen directly involved in the attacks were killed by security forces.
The eight terrorists were sentenced to death after seven court hearings.
